The last decorated tree is in place in the reading area at the west end of the library, so let the contest begin. Entries have been received from individuals, families, clubs and businesses with proceeds from the event benefiting Solon Habitat for Humanity.
Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place as well at the Humanity Award. Trees will be judged for placement by the tree committee. The newly formed tree judging committee will take the place of the public vote from previous years. The community will vote for the Humanity Award.
A silent auction will be held for the trees through 12 p.m., Dec. 10.
